By The Farm. Produced by The Farm and Performing Lines

Glen and Brittany are getting to know each other. They go for a drive in Glen’s pride and joy, a 1970s Volvo. What could possibly go wrong?

What starts out with a love song to a car, quickly turns creepy as the couple realise someone, or something, is watching them from the darkness.

Soon, engines are rumbling, rock ‘n’ roll is blaring, and total chaos is unleashed when human roadkill become the walking dead and gangs of zombies return to wreak havoc.

Watched through your car windscreen, lit by your headlights and heard through your car radio, Throttle, is a high-octane, drive-in theatre experience online anything you’ve ever seen before.

Buckle your seatbelts. Dive under the dashboard. Scream in fear. You’re in for a ride!
